Great Moments in Price Family History: May 2021
Ali Finstad, a great great granddaughter of Joe and Lizzie Price and an MD candidate at the University of Ottawa, was recently part of a team of medical students who “advocated for more skin colour representation in their dermatology studies and created an official new module for the MD curriculum that addresses skin colour diversity in diagnosing and treating dermatoses.”
The new module became available to students in May.
With support from the Faculty of Medicine, uOttawa medical students advocated for more skin colour representation in their dermatology studies and created an official new module for the MD curriculum that addresses skin colour diversity in diagnosing and treating dermatoses.
